Hi everyone! Because the weather has been so gorgeous, I have been excited about decorating for Fall. However, the new color scheme has been challenging as I really wanted to go a different direction from the reds and golds from previous years. It dawned on me that the sky is "Carolina blue" in the fall, so I knew blue would be the accent.
But...knowing I had to use only what I had here was the challenge. I tried everything and didn't like any of it.
Remember all the old vinegar bottles I found here that belonged to my grandfather?? It never dawned on me to use them here. I also hit the jackpot yesterday when I found two blue canning jars in my grandparent's cellar. I placed them in the canning basket my mom gave me. Then I just added more family treasures...
All these books belonged to my grandfather and the silver creamer and sugar were my grandmother's. I made some leaf tags out of burlap and music to tie onto the bottles.
I filled my grandmother's old colander with pumpkins and dried hydrangeas.
I made the bottle lamp last spring so I changed out the seashells for leaves, buckeyes, etc. I had already covered the lampshade with burlap so I cut out some leaves from old music and burlap to add for a little fall whimsy. The little tart pans were also my grandmother's. I used sheets of music over the matelasse runner.
Both sets of antlers were from deer my dad killed years ago.
The vintage print and buffet were passed down from a dear relative...
...as well as the bird prints.
So that is my fall buffet this year! I am so in love with this look. But the best thing is these are all things that I not only had here, but all belonged to my family.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I'll be linking up to:
